Weekend Quick Cryptic 23 - by Phil Jordan

My fellow TimesforTheTimes contributor and expert solver, Phil Jordan, and I are continuing to produce crosswords to fill the gap left by the Saturday Times not having one. The plan is for us to alternate, publishing one a fortnight, and this week it's Phil's turn.

You can find  the crossword here and the answers below. Feel free to leave any comments or questions here as you would do on TfTT, or via email to Phil at

Click on this label for a couple of hints.

  • The theme is based on the date of publication and is found in 18A, 16A, 13A and 1D.

  • The word at 20D is maybe uncommon, but is fairly clued and is one of only 2 word that fits the checkers, both chemicals.
